The Runaways

I've been out of blogging commission for a while. But, hopefully with my new uni semester started I can keep the blogging up because I'm going to have lots of writing to share. I'm doing 3 writing courses this semester--screenwriting, poetry, and writing for the professions. It looks like it's going to be a good semester, but than again I say that most semesters and when assessment roles around I'm cursing somebody, lol.

Not long ago I went to see "The Runaways". I didn't know what to expect from it, but really great movie, and I loved the music! It was based on the all girl late-seventies band The Runaways. Maybe it was a girl thing, but I definitely felt for the girls going through what they had to at such a young age and male dominated industry. And I have to mention again the MUSIC was AWESOME. I still can't get Cherry Bomb or Roxy Roller out of my head...maybe I was born in the wrong era.

Here's a little Cherry Bomb...


  1. Good luck with such busy semester ahead of you.
    I haven't watched that film, but I might give it a go now.

  2. Wow! Three writing courses. Looking forward to learning what you learn through your blog posts,
